It may be slow jogging to you but it’s a 4-minute mile to me!

Hey everyone! First the weight:

199.8

Okay, a skoche up from last week, but that’s okay — still below my 200-pound Cliffs of Fall!

Anyway, I’ve taken to running as well as walking, and while I’m not very fast (one mile = 20 minutes), it’s still fun, and makes me feel like a Gen-U-Ine Ath-a-lete, something I never felt like back at Grandview Junior High, where I did whatever it took to get out of running laps around the exercise yard!

But now that I’m officially an Old(ish) Lady, I find myself wanting to prove I can do this. Prove it to who? you ask. Well, that’s a good question!

I mean, this was way back in 1971, so I’m pretty sure all the Mean Girls who made fun of me back then have all morphed into the kind of people who post pictures of their cute cats on Facebook, in between sharing Qanon conspiracy theories and storming the Capitol.

So they probably don’t give a rat’s you-know-what that I’ve finally figured out how to do this “running” thing, at the ripe old age of 62!

But I have! And guess what, it turns out there’s this whole new thing called “slow jogging” that all the cool kids and hep cats are doing!

And I’m ALREADY slow, so for once I’m actually ahead of a trend instead of trailing along, huffing and puffing, in its wake!

So tell me, are any of you into this new “slow jogging” thing the youngsters are doing? Or perhaps you’ve found some new, even more cutting-edge version of an exercise you’ve often tried and failed to do, like maybe “waterless swimming” or “ball-free soccer”!

Tell me all about it in the comments! Meanwhile, whatever you’re doing, enjoy it, and I’ll see ya next week!
